According to official reports, Olave was caught traveling at a speed of 35 mph over the posted limit. During the process of his arrest, Olave displayed professionalism and was fully cooperative with law enforcement officials.
At the time of this post, the young star is being processed at the Kenner City Jail but is expected to be released shortly.
